• Hi guys,

    I’m just playing around with your plugin and I guess I need your support: I tried to seamlessly integrate your plugin with my theme (called BeTheme from Themeforest). I guess my problems are pretty basic and are not really connected to the theme at all:

    When I enter a new recipe by adding a new post I have to give the post a name (obvious) I can also add an image for that post (which the theme uses to display my new post). When I then add the recipe I have to do the same exercise again. My question is, can’t the plugin use the data from the post? I was hoping that your premium-themes would at least be able to automatically make use of the image I used when adding the new post.

    The same goes for the categories, I can of course add the wp-categories to the post AND the corresponding cusine to the recipe but isn’t there a way to make use of the wp-core functionalities?

    Thanks for your support and best regards,

    quicky

    These things are actually by design. Most people prefer the flexibility of using different images, titles, and categories for the recipe box.

    I can look into an option for using the Featured Image of the post if no image is set, but those other things will probably stay like this.

    Kind regards,

    Thanks for your fast reply. Just to put my request in the right perspective:

    I think it’s great that the plugin is really flexible. However I set up a website specifically for recipes. So it would greatly help if that site leverages the core wordpress-features to make recipe-management easy.

    Regarding my “categories vs. cusine” question: Based on the way you developed the plugin: Do you think it’s hard to use the wp-categories instead of an additional “cusine-table” to manage the cusine of the meal?

    Btw: I translated 90% of your plugin but what was interesting to me is the fact that esp. the cusine/course items that I translated are still in English in the plugin. As those two fields are freetext anyway, why are those items in the pot-file? Similar to this: I also translated all the units in the pot-file. However where are they being used (the fields in the plugin are freetext, right?).

    And lastly: As I’m still testing the plugin a lot: In case I want to start from scratch and not lose the recipes that I aleready entered: Can I backup/restore them somehow?

    Thanks a lot for the plugin and your support!

    Cheers,

    quicky

    You’re free to use categories instead of the cuisine field, but they just won’t show up in the recipe box then.

    The values for cuisines and courses are the defaults. Upon activation they get inserted as examples. If there were translations available at that time they would have been translated.

    I’m not sure which units you are referring to, but they are probably part of the nutrition facts then. The ingredient units are free text, indeed.

    Recipes are saved as custom post types with post metadata. There are probably plugins out there that can backup and restore this.

    Thanks again 🙂

    Based on the requests I raised, would you rather recommend trying out “WP Ultimate Recipe” instead?

    You could give that plugin a try, yes. Could be a better match for you.
